Chineyskoye is a major deposit of iron-titanium-vanadium and copper sulfide ores (free of sulfur and phosphorus). Of commercial significance are V, Ti, Fe, Cu and noble metals. The grades and reserves of the ore make this deposit unique. As to the vanadium reserves it is the world’s largest deposit. With respect to its copper reserves it is the world’s second largest deposit, second only to the Udokan deposit.
